      Is this line ok. On flop I thought he could do this with Ax so I have called to reevaluate on turn. Turn bet seemed kind of week to me and when he checked river I thought I could bet for value.

      It's okay, probably the best line if you think he can be bluffing on the flop.

      If not then you're usually better of just 3-betting and hoping you stack his whatever AQ that he's kinda overplaying, which if you think he can do that with Ax is the line that yields the most value.

      Hope it helps.
